History/Background

Looking backward...and to the Future.

My Background

The  classic cars that I now play around with were expensive new cars when I was starting out in the motor trade in 1957 , little did I imagine that forty years later they would be a very nice hobby of mine.

History of My Hobby

While working on Oil rigs and Platforms in the Norwegian Sector of the North Sea it became clear that there was a lot of interest in old cars in Norway.

The prices that they were fetching over there made it worthwhile fixing up and bringing over to the country reasonably priced Triumphs and MG`s.

The hobby pays for itself and creates a good feeling when you see another nicely turned out sportscar at a show or cruising down the road.

It also keeps them out of the scrapyard !
